Photographer Honors War Veterans with Calendar-Style Photoshoot
War takes its toll and countless soldiers come out of its ravages with wounds to show for it. But the true warrior wears his scars proudly, showing the whole world that there is honor, dignity and abundant pride when it comes to wounds inflicted in the battlefield. A photographer from Berkeley, California, Michael Stokes, has a book that celebrates these war veterans. Called Always Loyal, the publication depicts numerous battle scarred soldiers essentially naked. They are shown striking suggestive poses, looking extremely fit, and most of the time wearing nothing but a strong sense of confidence and pride.
